COLEMAN, Doctor William Hugh (April 13, 1918-September 22, 2007)
Bill COLEMAN passed away peacefully on September 22, 2007 in Orillia, Ontario. He was the beloved husband of the late Nell (née ROY;) cherished father of Diane (Bryan MERCER) in Calgary, Dale (Colin WHEELER) in Whitby, and Hugh (Ennis) in Orillia devoted grandfather of Robin, Tara, Jocelyn, Jeff and Mark, and great-grandfather of Fiona; much-loved brother of Catherine PERCIVAL, Helen (predeceased) and Herbert (predeceased); and fond uncle to two nieces and four nephews. Born in Palmerston, Ontario to Dr. Herbert and Mary Moore COLEMAN, Bill moved with the family to Toronto as a young boy. He completed his DDS degree at the University of Toronto in 1943, earning his way by working on Great Lakes boats and picking tobacco. He then served two years as a Captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force dental corps, posted to Aylmer, Ontario. He married his high school sweetheart, Nell ROY, an occupational therapist, in 1942 in Hamilton. After leaving the Air Force, he set up his dental practice in Toronto, and practiced until 1983, when his health mandated retirement. He was a dedicated member of the Lions Clubs in Leaside, Markham and Bracebridge, coordinating their fall pumpkin sales and many other aspects of fundraising and social events. After 60 years of participation, he was presented with a Lions Lifetime Award, of which he was justly proud. 'Papa' was a fun guy. His big smile and infectious sense of humour will be fondly remembered by all of his family, as well as by his Friends from Toronto, Markham, Bracebridge and Orillia; by his dental patients who loved their 'Dr. Bill'; and by those with whom he sang in choirs and in Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, played golf, curled, played bridge, camped and cottaged, boated and fished, sipped manhattans, and just enjoyed life. He loved the outdoors, the cottage and the lake - a passion shared by his children - and always had a dog to follow him around. He loved a good garage sale, grilled a great steak, could fix anything, and produced both good furniture and bad wine from his workshop. The family extends their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Birchmere Retirement Residence and of the Dialysis Unit of the Orillia Hospital for their kind care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. No service by request; a private cremation has taken place. Messages of condolence are welcomed at www.mundellfuneralhome.ca

WILSON, G. Marion, Reg. N.
Passed away peacefully at Markham Stouffville Hospital on Sunday, September 23rd, 2007. Marion is sadly missed and proudly remembered by her sons and daughters-in-law John and Susanne WILSON and Douglas and Susan WILSON, by her granddaughters and their partners Erin WILSON and Rick ANDREWS and Sarah WILSON and Ken MERCER, along with her extended family and the many Friends whose lives she touched over 94 years. Marion and husband John (the late Dr. W.J. WILSON) shared a long and rich journey encompassing the uncertainties and separation of World War 2, the busy and rewarding life of a medical family and, throughout it all, a complete devotion to one another. Marion began painting in the 1970's, both in oils and in watercolours, and has left the family a tangible and treasured legacy of her creative spirit. In recent years Marion and John remained active and enthusiastic members of the Uxbridge community enjoying golf, Friends and community activities. Marion was always inspired and sustained by what she loved the most -- her family, her Friends, her painting and her many memories of a life well-lived. Marion's family, Friends and community will celebrate that wonderful life with a memorial gathering at the Low and Low Uxbridge Chapel, 23 Main Street, Uxbridge, Ontario (905 852-3073) to be held on October 27th at 1: 30 p.m. The family would like to extend special thanks to Laurie MOUNTFORD, and the staff of Country Home Care for their gentle care and Friendship in what became Marion's beautiful second home. Instead of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation or a charity of choice.

Body of canoeist found
Bayfield-area man vanished afterleaving Friends for night-time paddle
By Jonathon JACKSON, Wednesday, July 04, 2007
The body of a Bayfield-area man who went missing while paddling on the Saugeen River was found Tuesday.
Byron HENDERSON vanished while padding along a stretch of the Saugeen just south of Paisley.
Const. Jeff MERCEY, the South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police detachment's media relations and community service officer, said Tuesday HENDERSON was with two companions on the weekend.
They canoed together on Sunday and regrouped that evening at a river access point on Concession 10 of the former Brant Township. HENDERSON, described as an experienced canoeist, said he was going to paddle downstream that night to Paisley, where he would meet up with his Friends after they made the same journey on Monday.
As the crow flies, it's about 12.5 kilometres but, because the river winds so much, it's difficult to know the exact distance on the water. A brochure from Thorncrest Outfitters suggests a time of seven hours to reach Paisley from Brant Concession 10, although store employee Rob BYRNE said the distance can probably be covered in as few as four hours by an experienced paddler.
HENDERSON's Friends set out Monday morning as planned and made it to Paisley, but saw no sign of HENDERSON in town or along the way. They became worried and contacted the police after trying on their own to locate him.
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police's Emergency Response Team, an underwater search team, a canine unit and a police helicopter were all used in a search for HENDERSON on Tuesday. Several police cruisers came and went from a command post established at the South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police's satellite office next to the junction of the Saugeen and Teeswater rivers in the heart of Paisley.
MERCEY said a canoe and "some personal belongings" were spotted Monday by a farmer in the water between Brant Concession 10 and Paisley.
He said HENDERSON's body was found in the Saugeen River between Conc. 10 and 12 of Brant Township by the dive team about 6: 30 p.m.
Police have no reason to suspect foul play, MERCEY said, but an autopsy was scheduled to be conducted today in London, Ontario
Anxious family members spent Tuesday waiting for word sitting on a park bench in Paisley, staring out at the water and waiting for news.
"We offered a spot inside (the office) for them, but they want to be outside," said MERCEY.
He said the family specifically told him they would not speak to the media.

Man charged with murder in brother's death
Police release few details about 18-year-old's death
By Doug EDGAR, Thursday, August 02, 2007
One brother is dead and another is charged with his murder after Ontario Provincial Police officers were called to a home in the former Kincardine Township Tuesday night.
John Robert FORRESTER, 18, is dead and Asa John FORRESTER, 22, is charged with second degree murder, South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Wednesday.
Officers from the detachment and Bruce County paramedics were called to the FORRESTER home on Concession Road 5 of the former Kincardine Township, Const. Jeff MERCEY said Wednesday afternoon.
"It came through dispatch in London as a call for assistance just prior to midnight," he said.
They found John FORRESTER "with critical injuries," MERCEY said in a news release.
The teen was immediately taken to hospital in Kincardine, where he died of his injuries.
MERCEY said he could not comment on the nature of the younger FORRESTER's injuries, since the information could be evidence, nor could he comment on what happened before police were called.
"We're still investigating that," he said. "There isn't a lot of information we can release."
John FORRESTER attended Kincardine District Secondary School, where he took part in athletics including track and field and hockey.
"He had just successfully graduated in June," Kincardine District Secondary School principal Dan HOBLER said Wednesday evening.
The school cafeteria was to open at 9 a.m. today for students or others who might want help dealing with FORRESTER's death. The school board's tragic response team was to be there.
"We don't know much detail," HOBLER said. "We just want to be there for anyone who needs it."
The news came as a shock, said Tanya BYERS, who coached John FORRESTER in Grade 9, when he reached the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations regionals in midget hurdles, and again this spring, when he trained in shot put and discus.
While they were not close, BYERS said FORRESTER had said he wanted to be a helicopter pilot.
"He was a pleasure to coach," she said. "He was a very likeable guy.Asa" John FORRESTER was to make a court appearance in Walkerton Wednesday afternoon and would likely be back in court today, MERCEY said.
The investigation is being directed by Det.-Insp. Bill RENTON of the Ontario Provincial Police's criminal investigation branch, with help from South Bruce detachment officers. An Ontario Provincial Police forensic identification unit based in Mount Forest has also been called in.
"We still have police at the scene," MERCEY said late Wednesday afternoon.
The last homicide investigation in the Kincardine detachment area was in 1994, he said.
John FORRESTER was a student at Kincardine District Secondary school, where he competed in track and field events.

GALPIN, Doctor Richard Robertson
Was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 29, 1915, first child of his parents Alfred and Louise GALPIN. His father worked as an official with Canadian Customs and Immigration, his mother maintained their home. Richard was the third generation of the family born in Vancouver. He was joined in a few years by his beloved sister Esther Louise (who later married C.G. (Bud) KILLAM. They are survived by their children, son Richard (Veronica), daughter Nancy SINCLAIR (Richard,) and son Michael (Lynette) all of Vancouver). He grew up in Vancouver, attending public schools. He graduated from Kitsalino High School, and attended the University of British Columbia, where he received his Bachelor's degree. When he spoke about this time in his life, he remembered the Friendships he had, and the love of his family. During this time he held many part time jobs that shaped his outlook on life, including working as a lumberjack, streetcar motorman, and on the railroad. As a young man, he enjoyed sailing, music and the outdoors, and played rugby for the Merelomas. His love of music has always been central to his life, and started with piano lessons as a boy. While attending University of British Columbia, he was introduced to a friend of his sister's, Helen STEVENSON, who he courted and married. After graduating from University of British Columbia, he attended Medical School at McGill University, and received his doctorate in 1943. After graduation, he was immediately assigned to service aboard the HMCS Waterford. He served through the remainder of World War 2 in the Canadian Navy and saw combat throughout the Atlantic Theater as a ship's surgeon. His decorations include: The Battle of Atlantic Medal, Normandy Star, Defense of Britain Medal, and the Victory Medal. He continued to have an affiliation with the Canadian Navy until his death, rising to the rank of Rear-Admiral (Reserves). He relished this connection to the navy throughout his life. He was particularly proud of his Honorary United states Naval Insignia, including Surface command, and Naval Aviator (U.S.S. Nimitz). He was also an honorary member of the Detroit Navy League. In 1949 Richard emigrated to the United States to begin his Pediatric training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He completed this and became Board Certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He joined Doctor Lloyd Kemp in his office at the corner of Brown and Southfield, and joined the staff at Beaumont Hospital when it was a single building lying on the outskirts of the city. He went on to practice pediatrics in the same location for over thirty years, caring for multiple generations from the same families. During his clinical practice he became especially interested in early childhood development. With his belief in the importance of nurturing this special period of a child's development and through the strength of his efforts, he founded the Neuro-Education Center at Beaumont Hospital. From early shoe-string budgets, he shepherded the center through it's early years, and maintained an interest in 'the Center' for the rest of his life. It has now become the Center for Human Development at Beaumont Hospital. He and Helen had four children Kenneth, Peter, Lindley and Sheila. The children were raised in Birmingham. During this time Richard and Helen were involved in many community affairs from the Birmingham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Kite Festival to the origins of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and were members of Christchurch Cranbrook. During this time he was an avid competitive sailor, a Member of Crescent Sail Yacht club. He passed on his love of music and sailing to his children. Helen and Richard divorced in 1970. In 1973 he was introduced to Maxine RICH by mutual Friends. They courted for two years and went on to be married in 1975. The marriage lasted until their deaths. As a couple they were inseparable. As well as traveling, they loved to entertain at Maxine's house in Orchard lake, were avid ballroom dancers and enjoyed boating on Cass Lake. Richard is survived by his first wife Helen GALPIN of Comox, British Columbia and son Peter (Nina) and their twin children Akira and Mikiko, daughter Lindley (Carey) and her children Karen and Amy, Father-in-law to Mary BODO (Kenneth,) daughter Sheila MEREDITH and her children Thyra and Nedra, and their children Walter, Ella and Daniel. Stepchildren, Tina BROWNE (Charles) and their children, Paul, Theodore, and Isabel, Todd RICH (Denise) and their children P.J. and Zachary. In lieu of flowers the family and Doctor GALPIN request donations to either Mariner's Church Music Fund, 170 East Jefferson, Detroit, Michigan 48226 or the Center For Human Development, Beaumont Hospital, 1695 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 120, Royal Oak, Michigan. While the world may seem a darker place without the light of his smile, his skill as a raconteur and his joy at the piano, his contribution to the world has been great, and we carry him with us always.

'Brilliant teacher' and professor explained politics to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation viewers
Political scientist triumphed not only as a scholar but also as a commentator. He could explain even the most erudite concepts succinctly and without condescension, writes Sandra MARTIN

In the great triumvirate of scholarship, administration and teaching, by which academics tend to be graded, political scientist Paul FOX's contribution lay in all three areas - but above all in the classroom.
"He was the most popular teacher in a very big department, one that prided itself on teaching," said his former colleague, the political scientist J.T. McLeod (who writes fiction under the name Jack MacLeod). "He had a wonderful ironic wit and he could make the study of politics very lively, and about people, not just about laws and constitutions. He was a brilliant teacher." Beginning in 1962, Prof. FOX was the lead editor of Politics: Canada, a collection of readings that went through eight editions and which for many years was the most widely used undergraduate textbook in the subject.
Prof. FOX "was one of those remarkable academic administrators who's a true gentleman," said philosopher Paul GOOCH, president of Victoria College in the University of Toronto. "He was a man of unfailing courtesy. That was my initial and lasting impression," he said of the man who served two terms as principal of Erindale College (from 1976-1986) on the Mississauga Campus of the University of Toronto and then sat on the Board of Regents at Victoria, after he retired from teaching.
The opposite of an ivory tower academic, Prof. FOX gave his discipline a public face through his accessibility to journalists - eager for sound bites and pithy comments - and his many appearances as a political commentator on radio and television and in print, especially during political campaigns and election-night coverage. Rail thin, with a glint of humour in his eyes, he could explain even the most erudite concepts succinctly and without condescension.
"He was humane, and he brought the world of politics to you in a way which made you feel that you could not only understand it, but participate in it," former governor-general Adrienne Clarkson said. The two met in 1965 when Ms. Clarkson was co-host of Take Thirty on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television. Prof. FOX, who shared in the "entertain-and-learn-along-the-way philosophy" of the program was a regular guest on Take Thirty for a decade. "I have not high enough words of praise for this man," Ms. Clarkson said.
Paul Wesley FOX was born in 1921, the younger of two sons of Paul Hazelton and Ida (née MEREDITH) FOX. On his father's side, his family pre-dated the United Empire Loyalists, having emigrated from the American Colonies to what is now Nova Scotia in the early 1760s. His mother's family heritage was English and Welsh. His father worked for the Canadian National Railway as an assistant superintendent of operations for several branch lines in eastern Ontario, and his mother was a homemaker.
Paul and his older brother Arthur were born in Orillia, Ontario, their mother's home town, probably because his father was at that time posted in northern Ontario. The family moved to Ottawa when Mr. FOX was transferred there by the Canadian National Railway. Paul went to First Avenue School, then Glebe Collegiate and finished high school in Barrie, after his father was transferred there.
He went to Victoria College in the University of Toronto in 1940 and volunteered in the Canadian officers Training Corps. An excellent student, Mr. FOX graduated in 1944 with the Ames gold medal in political economy and the Men's Senior Stick (an award given by the student body to the student they feel has made the greatest contribution) at Victoria College. He immediately was posted for officer training at an army camp in Brockville, Ontario, and then, with the rank of lieutenant, to what was then called Camp Utopia, near Gagetown, New Brunswick The war ended before he could be shipped overseas.
He went back to the University of Toronto in the fall of 1945 to undertake studies for a masters degree in political science, which he completed in 1947, while working in the department as a research associate. He won a British Council Scholarship and probably completed the residency requirements for his doctorate at the London School of Economics the following year, before interrupting his education to teach at what was then called Carleton College in Ottawa from 1948 to 1954. That's where he met Joan GLADWIN. They were married on June 20, 1951, and eventually had three sons, Rowley, Bruce and Nicholas.
The family moved to Toronto in 1954 after Mr. FOX accepted an appointment as an assistant professor at the University of Toronto in what was then called the Department of Economics and Political Economy. At the same time, he continued work on his doctoral thesis and received his doctorate from the University of London in 1959.
Prof. McLeod arrived at the University of Toronto from Saskatchewan in October, 1955 to begin his doctorate in political science and almost immediately met Prof. FOX. "He and his wife had me to dinner, the day we met, and I thought 'isn't Toronto such a friendly place,' and I never got invited any place else for about five years," Prof. McLeod said with a chuckle.
"He was a pleasure to work with and a privilege to know. Thoughtful, helpful co-operative and always ready to give sensible advice&hellip and a good man. I never heard anybody say anything critical of him."
Political scientist David COOK, now the principal of Victoria College, still remembers being in Prof. FOX's Politics 100 class when he was an undergraduate in the mid-sixties. The textbook was the second edition of Politics: Canada, edited by Prof. FOX. "He was a tremendous teacher with a wonderful sense of humour who knew many stories about political figures and could weave them into his teaching of the elementary aspects of Canadian government," according to Prof. COOK.
"He was able to establish an intimacy with the class" even in a large lecture hall. "You liked the man immediately."
Besides Politics: Canada, Prof. FOX was also the senior Canadian editor of The World Almanac from 1972-78, the general editor of the 24-book series, Politics, co-editor of the Canadian Journal of Political Science from 1974-77 and president of the Canadian Political Science Association from 1979-80. He also served on the Advisory Committee on Research for the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism 1964-68, the Ontario Advisory Committee on Confederation from 1965-71, and as chair of the Ontario Council on University Affairs from 1987-88.
He was a mentor to younger academic colleagues and a very successful principal of Erindale College, according to Prof. COOK, who spent many years in the central administration of the university and had many opportunities to observe Prof. FOX in action. "He had an amazing ability to make relationships work and he transformed Erindale's relationship with the community in Mississauga," Prof. COOK said. "He delegated well and he gave the college a sense of itself."
After teaching at the University of Toronto for more than 30 years, Prof. FOX officially retired in 1987 and was named an emeritus professor. He returned to the college where he had spent his undergraduate years and served as Senior Research Associate from 1988-2004 and on the board of Regents, including a term as chair.
About three years ago, Prof. FOX developed pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive disease in which the air sacs of the lungs become replaced by fibrotic tissue, making it very difficult for the lungs to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. He managed with supplementary oxygen but declined in the last year and went into palliative care at Grace Hospital in Toronto just after Thanksgiving.
Paul Wesley FOX, O.C., was born in Orillia, Ont, on September 22, 1921 and died in Toronto on October 18, 2007, of complications from pulmonary fibrosis. He was 86. He is survived by his wife Joan, his three sons, two grand_sons, his older brother Arthur and his extended family.

MERKLEY, Mildred
In loving memory of my beloved wife Mildred who passed away June 27, Down the path of memories
I gently tread today
For my loving thoughts are with you
As life goes on its way
I often talk about you
with love and sad regret
For I, who loves you dearly
Never will forget
The many things you did for me
In your kind and loving way
You gave me years of happiness
No one can take away
To me you were someone special
Someone good and true
You will never be forgotten
For I thought the world of you.
Lovingly remembered by husband Harold.

MERKLEY, Dorothy (née STOREY)
Teacher, weaver, supreme homemaker, nurturer of family, Friends and pets. Born January 9, 1924, in Napanee, Ontario Died September 27 in Burlington, Ontario, after a hip fracture, with advanced Parkinson's disease and multiple medical problems, aged 83.
By Brenda BASS, Page L8
Dorothy MERKLEY was the fourth of six children born to Les and Lillie STOREY. Coming of age on a farm during the 1930s, a child of entrepreneurial parents who were often away quarrying stone and building roads, was no doubt the impetus for Dorothy's independence and capabilities in the home.
As a spirited woman of 18, Dorothy attended Normal School in Peterborough, Ontario She taught at several one-room schoolhouses, where her professionalism, energy and love of children affected some so much they remained in touch with "Miss Storey" for more than 60 years.
While working in Iroquois, Ontario, where she lived in a rooming house with her older sister Helen, also a teacher, Dorothy met her future husband. Alfred MERKLEY had been an exceptionally bright high-school student of Helen's. He pursued an engineering degree at Queen's University, and upon graduating moved to New Brunswick.
Dorothy followed him there and they married a week later. Shortly after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Dorothy had only had time to give her new home a thorough cleaning when she was forced to return to Ontario, first to the family home and then to a sanatorium in London.
Alfred obtained new employment in London, and for 2½ years made a daily trek on his bicycle to visit his young bride.
Dorothy survived to become a supportive mother to her only child, Paul, born in 1956. She was extremely proud of Paul and his wife, Lora, and of her nieces and nephews, their spouses, children and pets.
Dorothy excelled as a homemaker (her standards for cleanliness and ironing were exacting), became a prize-winning weaver (her standards for salvage edges also exacting), was active in her church and community and was an accomplished cook, baker and canner.
Her conservative standards were legendary. None of her family can recall seeing her in anything other than a smartly tailored dress or skirt, stockings and leather shoes - with a crisply ironed apron if she was working in the kitchen. Nor did she smoke, drink or swear. But she was as ready for fun as anyone.
Dorothy was part of a generation whose lives spanned much of the 20th century and who optimistically embraced the changes and challenges that that century wrought. She represents a morality, work ethic, generosity of spirit and way of life that is quintessentially Canadian.
Brenda BASS is Dorothy's niece.

He especially liked taking each of his family for a week during the summer months when they would share time together, usually on a fishing adventure. Jack also enjoyed getting away to the "acreage" where he would relax in his woodworking hobby and just enjoying the life which it provided. His family, and particularly his grandchildren, were his "pride and joy".
He was predeceased by his beloved Edna (née McARTHUR) and is lovingly remembered by his children Tom LOUCKS (Andrea) of Coronation, Jean (Bob) WALL of Calgary, Bob LOUCKS (Shar) also of Calgary, Janice (Gary) AUSTIN of Rocky Mountain House and Ronald, also of Rocky Mountain House.

Following cremation, a family service and celebration of Jack's life, officiated by Reverend Doctor Brian GOODINGS, was conducted at the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E. in Meaford, Ontario on Saturday, June 2 at 11: 00 a.m.
